Why not try combining a massage with some time in the Steam Room for deeper relaxation and a therapeutic benefit? Feel stress melt away as you rest in our private Steam Room, an excellent way to begin your spa experience. Steaming before a massage or facial can increase the benefits by warming and relaxing your muscles and tissues before the treatment. Your skin emerges revived and refreshed.
Benefits of Steaming
Relieves tension – Heat from the steam soothes your nerve endings and warms and relaxes your muscles. Steaming helps relieve joint pain and arthritis.
Reduces stress – Steaming causes the body to release endorphins, or “feel good” chemicals, reducing stress feelings. After steaming, you will feel rejuvenated.
Clears the skin – Steaming helps clear impurities through sweat and can act as an acne treatment. It also improves circulation throughout the body.
Opens the sinuses – Wet heat opens membranes and thins mucous fluids in your body, sinuses, throat and lungs. Loosening mucous can be felt immediately. After entering the steam your breathing feels clearer.
Removes toxins – Sweating relieves the body of waste products and sitting in a steam room for as little as 20 minutes, rids the body of an entire day’s worth of sweat and all of the toxins that come with it.
Treats cardiovascular disease – When you’re in a steam room, your body reacts to the heat and humidity in a way similar to mild exercise. This gets your heart pumping, exercising the muscle without exhausting it, making it stronger without risking injury or disease.
Promotes healthy blood flow – Capillaries dilate when exposed to the heat of a steam room, so blood flows freely and easily through the whole body, transporting oxygen everywhere you need it and leaving you feeling refreshed.
Post-workout relaxation– Muscles need to be relaxed and stretched after they are exercised in order to promote healthy recovery. When muscles are worked out, their tiny fibers break apart. When the fibers heal, the muscle gains mass and becomes stronger. This process is expedited in a hot environment.
Massages aren’t just relaxing, they are associated with many health benefits when performed by a licensed professional. Many scientific studies prove, through blood tests, that regular massages reduce inflammation, help with auto-immune conditions, decrease stress hormones, boost the immune system, and increase dopamine and serotonin.
Benefits of Massage
Ease Pain – 80% of Americans will suffer back pain. Studies show that a massage greatly reduces back pain and stiffness, and improves range of motion.
Curb Depression and Anxiety – Massages reduce the stress hormone cortisol, resulting in lower blood pressure, improved mood, and a sense of well being.
Improve Sleep – People often drift during a massage, and there’s a reason for it! The relaxation from a massage induces Delta waves, those linked with deep sleep. Your body remembers this the next time you lie down.
Boost Immune System – Research shows that massages increase white blood cell count, combating disease and boosting your immune system.
Raise Alertness – In one study, those receiving a 15 minute massage were more alert and completed math questions faster than those not receiving massage.
Beauty Benefits – Massages lead to increased blood flow, plumping your skin for a youthful, healthy appearance.
